DX Talks: Limits of Architecture

As in any critical relationship, the union of architect and engineer is a long and at times tumultuous history. An infinite struggle is enacted almost daily during the building process, yet these two seemingly disparate professions co-exist – but how? Drawing outside the lines of reason, this panel will embrace the dominion of architect and engineer, exploring schism, communication and perceptible limitations.

Introduction: Lisa Rochon, The Globe and Mail’s architecture critic.
